There are many factors to consider before choosing an Invisalign doctor for your Invisalign treatment. This article will illuminate some of the things to consider in choosing an Invisaling doctor that will best fit your needs.
The first thing to consider before choosing an Invisalign doctor is the location of the doctor’s office. You want the doctor’s office to be located somewhere where convenient for you. Whether it is close to your home, work, school, or other places you will frequently visit. You will have appointments every 2-3 months, thus you wouldn’t want to go somewhere that it is out of your way as it wouldn’t be too convenient.
Another very important aspect to consider is the doctor’s expertise and experience with Invisalign. Some good questions to ask are, does the doctor have Invisalign training? How long has the doctor worked with Invisalign? Is the doctor listed as a recommended Invisalign provider on www.invisalign.com? Does the doctor have experience in other areas such as cosmetic dentistry? The answers to these questions will give you a good indication of how experienced the doctor is with working with Invisalign.
After qualifying the doctor’s expertise and experience with Invisalign, it is extremely helpful to hear from other patients and their experience with the doctor. Look for reviews and testimonials on the doctor’s webpage and do a search on Google and websites such as Yelp. This will give you a direct and first-hand opinion on the Invisalign doctor you are considering.
Also take into consideration the doctor’s office/clinic. Take note of the cleanliness, staff, and ask yourself whether it is a pleasant environment to be in. Since you will be coming here for appointments, it is important that you feel comfortable with the doctor’s office/clinic.
Your Own Impressions
We all have our own individual preferences and opinions, thus perhaps the best way to decide on which Invisalign doctor to go with is to schedule an initial consultation and meet the doctor yourself. This will give you a good idea of whether it is someone you’d like to work with or not.
